Leadership 201

I feel I’ve graduated from Leadership 101 and am now working on Leadership 201. šŸ˜€ I don’t know how to say it but over the course of these past few days I’ve felt myself growing in leading and learning a lot about leadership. It’s not easy to even put into words, but I guess I should try.

So over the course of this week, I decided everyone in my family was joining the fitness center (whether they liked it or not) and I was paying. I was trying to show this is going to be great and we’re going to have fun! I also recognized that there was some growing in my leadership at work.

Over the course of this week at work, I was more than just trying to maintain composure as a customer threw a fit over the fact I supposedly charged for the wrong ice cream. He wanted a single scoop, but pointed to our two scoop cup. It took all the strength I had that day not to chuck that ice cream in his face. I guess being a leader, as I’ve learned, means also knowing when to stay calm and when to raise heck (putting it politely).

I also have been watching what it means to be a leader through watching a let’s play of Bioshock 2 (if you don’t know what it’s about please research it yourself as I don’t want to devote this part of the entry to explaining it, sorry). As the main character you can decided whether or not to allow people to survive or die. I won’t get into it much, but I will say that watching the “best ending” as it were, I am glad that this character is able to show me that being a leader means (usually) not exacting your revenge on someone despite how cruel they may have treated you in the past. This is an amazing revelation to me and very eye-opening.

I guess I’m ready to graduate now onto Leadership 201. I wonder what knew things I’ll learn now! šŸ™‚

Love and prayers!
